On loan defender Sol Bamba says Leeds United need to focus purely on getting points.

Leeds United defender Sol Bamba has suggesting to the Yorkshire Evening Post how the club can progress after one appearance in the first team.

“We play very good football sometimes, but we have to dig deep now. It doesn’t matter how good you play, you have to get some points,” said Bamba.

Bamba featured in the win against Huddersfield last weekend, injecting fresh legs and more strength into the back four.

He seems to have made a sound judgement after such a short spell at the club based on the team’s current position.

His comments make sense because Leeds are fighting at the wrong end of the table and need points on the board to help them pull further clear of the bottom three.

At their best, Leeds play a very attractive brand of football but Bamba is right to suggest it’s results which matter at the moment.

Results breed confidence, which makes games slightly easier and enhances the chances of the side maintaining the momentum they have created for themselves.

Neil Redfearn has plenty of time to get the side playing a more attractive brand of football when the team is safe.

Leeds face a difficult game against Brentford this weekend before a trip to Reading next week and Bamba for one won’t care how the side plays as long as the team make it six points out of six from those two games.
